WIRTGEN Inset Slipform Paver


Mobile road construction plant

When paving in inset application, the concrete is delivered by trucks and dumped ahead of the slipform paver. It is spread by an excavator or second paver when working with large paving widths. Depending on the paver model used, the material is then distributed evenly across the full paving width by a spreading auger or spreading plough. The robust paving mould slipforms the concrete pavement while travelling over the previously distributed concrete material. Electrical vibrators emitting high-frequency vibrations ensure optimum compaction of the concrete during the slipforming process. Tie bars and dowel bars are inserted into the freshly paved concrete automatically. Last but not least, a finishing beam and super-smoother put the finishing touches to the new pavement.
